Feast of April 25, Giorgia Meloni celebrates Liberation Day

There were no great doubts, but the castle of non-existent cards built by the left on the eve of April 25th did not resist. And the reality of the facts attests to a center-right government fully participating in Liberation Day, aware of the value of Liberty as a unifying function. And, in this centre-right, a right completely free of the old legacies of fascist nostalgia. Silvio Berlusconi, the leader of Forza Italia, underlined how freedom is a founding principle. In a note released during hospitalization, he recalled the attempt to overcome the conflicts that he brought to light when celebrating in Onna, in 2009, on April 25th. An objective that was recalled by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, in a letter published in Corriere della Sera. What Berlusconi expressed in 2009, writes Giorgia Meloni, is a desire «that I not only share, but that I want to renew today, precisely because 78 years later, the love of democracy and freedom continues to be the only true antidote against all totalitarianisms » . In the same letter, by the way, the Prime Minister writes unequivocal words about Ventennio: “Many years ago and as every honest observer recognizes, the parties that represent the right in Parliament declared their incompatibility with any nostalgia for fascism”. A passage that leaves no room for doubt and exploration. As well as the posture of the entire center-right in the Executive and in the institutions.

The President of the Senate Ignazio La Russa, at the center of the controversy in recent days, has a very busy schedule: in the morning he is also at the Altare della Patria together with the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella, the Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and the Third Cabinet of the State Lorenzo Fontana. Then, during the day, he flies to Prague, where he pays homage in Wenceslas Square at the monument dedicated to Jean Palach, a martyr of the anti-Soviet protests who sacrificed his life in the fight against communism. Just as it honors the victims of the Nazi concentration camp in Terezin: a wreath of flowers and five yellow butterflies, a symbol of freedom to honor the child victims of that barbarism. Returning to the government camp, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, keeping faith with intentions, stops at the American Cemetery in Florence. Our eternal gratitude goes to all those who were buried there, “and to the Allies who made a decisive contribution to the Liberation of Nazi-fascism”. On the contrary, the vice-president Antonio Tajani arrives at the Mausoleum of Fosse Ardeatine: “We are here – he observes – because this is the commemoration of the day of liberation from Nazi-fascism. This is not the place to make polemics but to defend values ​​and respect the pain of families”. Adolfo Urso, Minister of Economic Development, for his part, participated in the ceremony held by the Jewish Community of Rome, at Porta San Paolo. Education, Giuseppe Valditara, participated in some initiatives in Milan: “We celebrate Liberation, but it is also a great celebration of democracy and freedom”, he said. The owner of Culture Gennaro Sangiuliano was in Naples, at the stele dedicated to Salvo D’Acquisto In short, this summary of the government’s agenda summarizes the full meaning of the center-right’s participation in the (authentic) sense of April 25th.
